General description

This seminar course allows students to expand their understanding of Canadian history and the Canadian immigrant experience by focusing specifically on women’s experiences. Immigrant women’s encounters with home life, the immigrant community, labour force, wider Canadian public, and the state and official policy will be examined. The course delves into the ways that gender, class, race, ethnicity, sexuality, religion, and citizenship intersect in different ways.

The course provides a thematic overview of key issues in gendered immigrant experiences. However, the themes are also temporally grounded in order to provide students with a clear understanding of the changes and continuities over time from pre-Confederation to wartime Canada. The course introduces students to the history of a wide array of immigrant groups and communities present in Canada.

Students will be evaluated on their participation and contribution to seminar discussion, on a group presentation assignment, and on a series of short written responses to selected topics and readings. Seminar attendance is mandatory.
